Last year On The Go Tours was honoured to be named the winner of the Best Tour Operator to East and Central Asia at the prestigious British Travel Awards. This year we are delighted to say that we’ve scooped not one, but two awards, and it’s all thanks to you!
The British Travel Awards is the largest UK awards programme created to recognise the best companies in travel and is regarded as the benchmark for excellence. But what makes these awards so special is the fact that they are voted for by the public, by our very own travellers. So a massive thank you to everyone who voted for us, as we are now the proud winners of the Best Holiday Company to East and Central Asia (China and South Korea), and Best Holiday Company in Southern Asia (India and Sri Lanka). We also came in as finalists for Best Holiday Company to North Africa (Egypt and Morocco), Best Holiday Company to Southeast Asia (Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Borneo, Thailand and Burma) and Best Escorted Adventure Company.
To celebrate our win we are going to look at our most popular group tour in each category, explain what makes them so special and share why our travellers love them!
India and the Taj Express
Having successfully run tours to India for over a decade, we pride ourselves on creating itineraries that combine authentic travel experiences with plenty of local interaction, plus a few creature comforts along the way, resulting in a truly memorable holiday. Escorted by an expert local guide, our popular 8 day Taj Express tour offers travellers the chance to take in the classic sights of India, from the colourful chaos of Delhi and iconic Taj Mahal in Agra to the stunning Pink City of Jaipur, staying in quality 3-4 star hotels and heritage-style properties from start to finish.
But don’t just take our word for it, here is what our travellers have to say:
I’ve had an amazing time on the Taj Express trip and felt very safe and comfortable which is very important for a woman travelling alone. I hope the rest of my travels through India are just as wonderful. Our guide Yusef was very helpful and knowledgeable, a credit to On The Go India. Great start to my travels. Thank you! – Vivien
It was an excellent tour. I am definitely an ‘On The Go’ fan and will use them again. I loved the character of the accommodation in Jaipur and Surajgarh. This adds to the entire experience. The tour guide Yusef was excellent. His knowledge of his country was great and you know he is proud of his country. The people are very friendly all over. – Lizeth
China and Chinese Checkers
With over ten years experience taking travellers to China, we have honed our itineraries to perfection aiming to give you a comprehensive and authentic travel experience visiting key point of interest as well as taking you off the beaten track. Led by an expert local guide, our 11 day Chinese Checkers tour offers a complete checker board of history, culture, sights & experiences. Jump from old Beijing and the expansive Great Wall to the mammoth carved statues at Longman’s Caves, Suzhou – known as little Venice and 21st century Shanghai.
Here is what our travellers thought of our Chinese Checkers tour:
We have just returned from our wonderful Chinese Checkers 11 day tour and would be very happy to recommend this trip – excellent value for money, very comprehensive itinerary enabling us to see so much every day, friendly and entertaining local guides who knew so much about their cities. However your greatest asset has to be Feng, our tour leader, nothing was too much trouble, she handled everything so calmly and efficiently, and made sure we all enjoyed the best holiday possible. Thank you once again, and we look forward to our next ‘On The Go’ experience. – Eleanor
We are back from China, and just wanted to let you know that our holiday was one that we will always remember. Everything was more than expected: excellent organization, wonderful tour guides (specially Chris), luxurious hotels, delicious food, beautiful sightseeing places, etc. We totally recommend “On The Go Tours” to others. Will probably contact your company again in the future for other adventures. Thank you very much!! - Tomas and Luis
Thanks again to everyone who voted for On The Go Tours at the 2013 British Travel Awards – we greatly appreciate it. We look forward to welcoming back those of you who have travelled with us in the past, and those we have yet to meet. Happy travels!
